    taken advantage of

    hi everyone,
    "to feel taken advantage of" or "to feel being taken advantage of", which one is ok?
    I would say both but they would mean something a little bit different, right?
    thanks

    Re: taken advantage of

    It depends:
    I feel I was taken advantage of.
    I feel that I am being taken advatage of.
    The 'being' just shows that the exploitation is unfinished.
